Draft Local Planning Strategy

The Draft Local Planning Strategy will guide the Shire’s progress towards its vision to provide a rural lifestyle of choice offering a unique and attractive environment to work, live and visit.

It provides strategic direction, which over the long term, will deliver a more consolidated urban form where residents will live closer to local shops, services and employment with easy access to public transport and greater ability to walk or cycle.

The Draft Local Planning Strategy promotes urban consolidation by making better use of existing infrastructure and land to plan for growth.

Open for Public Comment

Over the past few months the Shire has been engaging with the community about our draft Local Planning Strategy and draft Local Planning Scheme No. 3.  The advertising period has now closed, no more submissions will be accepted.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made a submission.

There has been significant interest from our community through various community briefing sessions, direct mail out to landowners and an online self-service portal. Which has led to a large number of submissions being received for both the draft Local Planning Strategy and draft Local Planning Scheme No.3.

The formality of reviewing submissions has begun and we would respect your patience at this time as we would like to go through every submission thoroughly.

If you have any further questions please do contact the Shire or one of our Planning Officers we are more than happy to help with any questions regarding the process, the two documents and or your submission.
